Does NOLA serve a purpose other than for the turistas?

Some friends suggested New Year's Eve dinner at NOLA this year.

I would love you foodies opinions on this:

The last time I ate at Nola a year ago I thought the food was just very, very average. The food can't compare with the Brigtsen's / Clancy's genre. It certainly can't compare with the August / Cuvee genre. And it can't compare with restaurants in the Dick and Jenny / Gabrielle genre. So, what is it? It seems to have gotten left as sort of a relic from the Emeril "New New Orleans Cooking" days and it just goes through the motions with nothing much to excite. (I haven't been to Emeril's in a few years but assume it's on automatic pilot too.) Can anybody name a dish from NOLA that blows them away? Is there anyone who can recommend this place? Thanks.
